The penalty is FAR too light.
It should be
Ist offense - 6 month driver's license suspension, and $500
2nd offense - driver's license suspended until 21 years of age, $1000, and mandatory driver safety classes totaling no less than 40 hours. Driving test required to get reinstated.

IMO - Fining a teen is no good. The teen has a car, has a cell phone, both paid for by PARENTS. Guess who ends up paying the fine?
No, you must do something to make the teen pay the consequences. I would go for community service. Picking up trash on freeways where they might be seen by their friends - that will do it.
